Wine Description

COLOR: Ruby red color tending to garnet with ageing. BOUQUET: Pervasive bouquet, very generous and varied, with hints of soft fruit. FLAVOR: Dry, warm, well-sustained, well-orchestrated, delicate and austere at the same time, persistent.

This Brunello shows very nice balance with sweet aromas of cherry, bright fruit, almond paste and Christmas spice. The wine plays the elegance card well with a mouthfeel that is tight and buoyant without being chewy or heavy.

    (1995 Vintage) Rating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Slightly dumb nose, but with blackberry and oak aromas. Blackberry confirmed on the palate, with a hint of oak and medium concentration.
